I Am Recovering From 7 Months Of Anorexia. I Ate About 900 Calories Per Day And Am Now Slowly Working My Way Up. I Am Worried About Where I Will See Weight Gain. Will It All Go To A Certain Area. If So Will It Go Away?

Congratulations On The Hard

Congratulations on the hard work you are doing! When you gain weight in recovery, it may settle first in your mid-section, due to your body trying to protect your organs. It will settle more evenly over the next few months, but you may be uncomfortable for a while. Don’t give up! You deserve a life without this monster!
Take care.
